Featured Posts From “Anti-Procrastination Tuesdays” Link Party

I held my first “Anti-Procrastination Tuesdays” link party here at New Nostalgia last week.  It was really fun reading through the posts, they were so motivating and full of many great ideas!  Thank you to those who participated, my hope is that it will continue to grow in the coming weeks.
I know I personally got a lot done this week, thanks to our “Anti-Procrastination Tuesdays” together.  When I don’t feel like doing anything, I think “gotta have something to post on tuesday” which is enough to get me up to check what is next on my doozie-of-a-list.

Here are a few featured posts from last week:

Power Of 3
 Hoosier Mama Liz, over at Hoosier Homemade, wrote a brilliant post.  This one really stood out to me, and has caused me to start thinking about how I can incorporate her great idea into our family.
I love how simple it is!  She calls it the “Power Of 3”  Here is more from Liz:

“I simply give each of the boys (18,16 & 12) and my husband 3 things each day to do. Simple…huh? Not quite sure why I didn’t think of it before.

I typed up a form that has each of their names and 3 lines, I use a different sheet for each day. And if a chore on their list doesn’t get done (gasp) it gets added to the next day, if they have a chore listed more than…you guessed it…3 days, they are grounded for…you guessed it…3 days!”

 I love it.  The rest of the post is well worth reading, so head on over there and say hi to Liz for me.  

Laurie, over at Domestic Productions linked a post whose title caught my eye.  “Procrastination-The Lock To Healthy Eating”-how true is that?  Here is more from her post:

I said earlier that The Key to Healthy Eating is Planning. Well, that makes Procrastination the Lock to Healthy Eating. When we procrastinate it leaves us in a state of emotional eating and held hostage to convenience food.

So true.  Laurie used our “Anti-Procrastination Tuesday” as motivation to make healthy bread.  Don’t they look delish?  The recipe is on her post.

Cutting Through The Clutter Of Toys
Destri at The Mother Huddle is one of those women who just continue to amaze me with her ideas and writing.  I have loved getting to know her through twitter, email and her blog.  Her blog is a must visit, it is as lovely as she is.
The post she linked is invaluable to anyone who has toys!  It is full of a bunch of great ideas.

Framed-My First Anti-Procrastination Project
I just wrote a post about Laurie and her new blog, she happens to be my lil’ sis so the post is pretty much big sister braggin’ on lil’ sister. Her blog is great, much to brag about!  I was super happy she participated in my link party.  She finally got around to framing and hanging her wedding pics, don’t they look great?

Come join us on tuesdays!  We’d love to hear about what you are (or are not) getting done!  Click here for more information.

    Thanks so much for highlighting me. Not sure if I will be linking this week, I need to look thru some posts. I’ll see what I can come up with. I’ve narrowed my niche down lately to food and decorating.

    Thanks for reposting these, Amy. The party has been a great idea. I made my own sheet of the “power of 3” for my teenagers. 🙂 Great idea and I look forward to tomorrow!
